This seascape print shows Cromer Pier at dusk with beautiful colours stretching across the sky as the sunset fades behind the horizon. Cromer is a seaside town in Norfolk and situated on a cliff-top overlooking fine sandy beaches. There has been a pier or jetty in Cromer since 1391.
Cromer is thought to be home to several ghosts and one story tells that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the author of the famous adventures of Sherlock Holmes, came to stay in Cromer. During his stay, Sir Arthur heard the legend of Black Shuck, a Norfolk ghost hound. Apparently Sir Arthur was so taken by the story; it inspired him to write one of his most famous mysteries \”The Hound of the Baskervilles\” in 1902.
